looks alright to me, im not so fussed about the visual style as long as the mini games are good. seems to have been received fairly well on the DS and they spent a few months tweaking it for iphone.

would love someone to TOFTT before i take tha plunge here

Played this on the DS and quite liked it.
Since having the iPhone I've become a complete scrooge so will hope for a price drop.

I've had a chance to play this a bit more, and I really like it. It looks and sounds great, and has a really nice cartoony style to it (If you're put off by this...see above, maybe it's not for you, but I think it's great). It has pretty extensive character customization, some of which are unlockable through completing challenge points on specific events. You can play by yourself, or challenge up to 3 other players in pass-n-play modes. You can also sign up for a free game-spy account to participate in local, regional, and global record leaderboards. This is what gives the game such replayability...I am now the WORLD record bubblegum blower. I imagine this will soon fall when more players get the game, but there was something quite cool about being verified by Guinness as the world record holding iDevice gum bubble blower (say that 3 times fast). This game may be a port from the DS version, I have no idea since I never played it before, but even if it is, they seem to have done a great job. I've only had a chance to compete in 3 events so far, balloon popping, paper plane throwing, and the aforementined bubble blowing, but they have all been simple (keep this in mind, they haven't been terribly difficult so far), fun, and easy to understand with good directions given beforehand. All in all, I highly recommend this game. The price may be high for some, and if you want to wait and see about a price drop, go for it. If however, you've got an extra 5 bucks you could do much, much worse...and leave my bubble record alone!

If it hasnt been developed by Warner Bros I would expect you're the dev reviewing the game yourself.

It actually looks nice, but I'd like to watch a video of the gameplay.
